“5-Pin Bowling Fun For The Kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

It is a small 4 lane bowling alley, which is what we expected. But playing 5-pin bowling was a new experience for us. The kids had a blast with the small balls and three tries per frame. We made reservations for an hour and that was enough time for 4 people to play 2 games. This would be a good rainy day activity. They have glow bowling some nights, but we missed that night. Food and drinks are extrmely expensive, but that was no surprise given the location.

The boys loved this type of bowling. They use different pins and ball then America bowling. Service is fantastic! Make a reservation before you go though.

“Glow in the dark mini-bowling”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We went to this place under the impression that it was a regular bowling alley. We didn't know that it was a mini-bowling alley.
That took away from the fun a little bit.

“fun place to visit while staying in Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Looking for something slightly different to do? Visit the Bowling Alley! Glow bowling started partway through our bowling experience.
Terrible cell reception in this place, so make sure you aren't expecting any important calls while bowling. My husband had service, but i had none.

“Best bowling in the valley.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

We went bowling and tried out the glow in the dark. It was amazing. Drinks are a good price and value for bowling was great as well. Bring your friends and family.
